Cryptomeria japonica 'Egmont' (Japanese Cedar) Details

“Egmont” is an evergreen tree that makes an exceptional and hardy shelterbelt. It features dense, dark green foliage held on short stems and grows with an upright habit. Left untrimmed it will reach 30 m tall and 8 m wide but it is often trimmed to much smaller sizes. The growth rate is typically 1-2 m per year. This variety grows best when planted in full sun on a well-drained site. It will tolerate a wide range of soils, barring extreme wet and dry, and is hardy to frost, cool climates, wind, coastal environments, and dry periods. “Egmont” is commonly planted for shelter and screening where a hardy evergreen is required. Plants should be spaced 1.5 m apart in these situations.
